Tusla - Ireland's Child & Family Agency

Ben* is an amazing 3 year-old boy whose heart-warming smile, infectious laugh and charming wit has captured the hearts of those lucky enough to have him in their lives. While Ben is PEG fed and presents with a global development delay his determination, curiosity and ever-increasing independence proves he is not willing to be defined by this. Like all boys his age, his big personality shines through in his love for fast cars, kicking footballs and exploring the outdoors.

Ben’s curiosity and eagerness to learn is nurtured daily by his carers and furthermore in crèche on daily basis. His fun loving character has built quite a rapport with teachers and peers alike and he can be quite the entertainer.

Ben communicates both verbally, and non-verbally - mainly using gestures and Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS). Ben’s increasing independence and determination to constantly learn new skills has seen him hitting milestone after milestone over the last twelve months. He is a very affectionate young boy who given the safety, security, and supportiveness of a nurturing home will continue to thrive and bring happiness and brightness wherever he goes.
